Abstract : Over the last several years outsourcing has become an increasingly popular mode to reduce costs and focus operations upon the main objectives of an organization. This paper looks at outsourcing in general, and automatic data processing (ADP) outsourcing in particular It discusses both private industry and government experiences with outsourcing, and their respective successes and failures. It further discusses several considerations that should be reflected upon before outsourcing is implemented by an organization. In general, outsourcing, especially of ADP processes, has been successful, but it should not be expected, carte blanche, to produce savings in all instances.
